Cybersecurity is a fast-growing industry that offers many career opportunities. Cyberseek reports that there are almost 500,000 job positions. In the Tampa / St.Petersburg / Clearwater job market, for instance, there are over 6,000 job openings. This means that cybersecurity professionals need to be available at all times.
What do cybersecurity workers prefer-a degree or certifications?
A cybersecurity degree costs more than a certification and takes longer. The degree is more general and can be applied to many industries. However, it requires less practical skills.
A certification shows that you are able to demonstrate the skills employers require. The law also requires you to have the right certification (see above). This is why 70% of cybersecurity workers believe that certifications are essential for their professional development. Only 10% of respondents said they had a bachelor’s or master’s degree, while 5% said they had a combination.

Can I really finish the training in 5 weeks?

How can I get a job in Cybersecurity without a degree
CompTIA Cybersecurity+ and CompTIA Net+ are two of the most important certifications that you’ll need, if you’re new to cybersecurity. This is why: The DOD-8570 regulation is a lesser-known government regulation. Although technically it has been updated as DOD-8140, the chart used the DOD-8570 old format. You need at least one of these certifications if your position might expose you to sensitive government information. CompTIA Security+ is the minimum requirement. Even companies that do not work with government agencies are required to obtain this certification. These certifications will make you highly sought-after and should not be a problem to get placed.
